DONCASTER Rovers are to let fans in for FREE on Good Friday for their crucial relegation showdown with Crystal Palace.

Chairman John Ryan wants the town to come out in force for the crucial clash with the Eagles after Doncaster slipped closer to the Championship drop zone following Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at Hull City.

The club will release around 7,500 free tickets for the game, which will be available on a first-come-first-served basis.

Ryan said: “It is essential that everybody in Doncaster gets behind our team.

“With us giving tickets away for free, cost is not an issue and there is no excuse for not being here - so please come down to the Keepmoat Stadium and help us ensure that we are playing Championship football next year.

“I will be there on Friday afternoon in the Polypipe Stand myself - beating the drum and helping to brew up an electric atmosphere.”

Rovers are just five points clear of the relegation zone with four games to play - although victory on Saturday would go a long way to preserving Championship status.

Tickets are free to ALL Rovers fans but are restricted to TWO per supporter.

Families will also be able to claim tickets together, and fans are advised to collect tickets at the Keepmoat Stadium ticket office ahead of the game on Friday.

Anyone who has already purchased a ticket will be able to claim a full refund.

A club statement said: “Doncaster Rovers don’t want your money – we just want your support in a bid to ensure that the team is playing second-tier football next season.

“Get behind your club – it’s your town and your team.”
